World Book and Copyright Week at the Library

Logo_50e_Web_ENWe have a special line-up of events at the Library in honour of World Book and Copyright Day, a Unesco initiative to battle illiteracy. The event to promote books and reading is held every year on April 23 (also Shakespeare’s birthday).

To celebrate the library’s 50th anniversary, we will host two special author events. Both events will be followed by a wine and cheese. We ask that you call the circulation desk to reserve your place: 514-630-1218 extension 1624.
